Sunday school teacher arrested in child porn investigation

SHELTON — There are shocking allegations against a local Sunday school teacher who is now under arrest.

schultzKevin Schultz faces felony child porn possession and child exploitation charges after cops say he sent pictures of his genitals to an 11-year-old girl. And what’s worse, the victim knows the suspect – she went to his Mason County church in Shelton.

It all started when the young girl’s mother said she found hundreds of text messages and pictures on her daughter’s cell phone – that’s when she called police.

Cops say Schultz sent images of his genitals to the young girl and somehow he was able to get her to send him naked pictures of herself, too.

Schultz volunteered at the Bethel Assembly of God children’s ministries for about two years. Church officials said they are cooperating fully with police during this investigation.

Pastor John Pierce said, “It is our understanding that the incident took place outside of church ministries and is currently under investigation by law enforcement. The individual has been removed from involvement with all volunteer roles until the matter is resolved. “

Schultz’s bail was set at $50,000 and his next court appearance is July 22. Police and the victim’s mom worry there could be other victims out there. Police said more charges could be coming.

      It not the cell phone thats the problem its the lack of parenting. I go through my 10 year old sons cell phone on a daily basis. The advantages of a tween with a phone are too many to count. It is the best way to check in with your child while he or she is out and about in the world.
      Its strong parenting that keeps childten away from sickos……because no matter what they will encounter a sicko at some point. How the child has beem taught to handle the situation makes all the difference.

      My kids both went to this church when they were younger. I can guarantee that this man will not be allowed to be at the church around any of the children who attend either. This church is and was great for protecting the children that attend.

    An 11 yr old shouldn’t be allowed a cell phone (unless for emergency). An 11 yr old shouldn’t be “out and about either!” I keep my 11 yr old under lock and key! She is 11!!!! And that man is SICK!! There is no excuse for what he did!!

    This is the church my family and I attend and these are friends of my family, he has a family that is trying to make some sense of all of this and trying have some normalcy in their everyday lives as well as is the victim and her family. I can tell you all this much this is not a direct reflection of our church nor the people who go to it, this man made a very bad decision and is now being detained for it, please keep in mind when you post comments that his family and the victims see them and is only adding to the grief they are being faced with. Thank you

    Both families should be kept in our prayers. His family and the 11 yr old and her family. The shock that both sides are going through has to feel insurmountable but we have to remember that he is innocent until proven guilty no matter how overwhelming the evidence is.

    Believe me, no one is excusing what has happened, but please keep in mind he has a family who is having to deal with the fallout from his decisions. Everyone is reeling from this.
